It is the policy of RALL and Little League International that all volunteers be cleared through a background check prior to participating in any volunteer capacity. This includes board members, managers, coaches, umpires, team assistants, parent helpers, and any other person who will be in the vicinity of our players within the confines of the baseball fields. This policy is in place to insure the security and safety of our youth participating in RALL, and will be enforced with no exceptions.
Effective for the 2017 Season:
All background checks will be submitted electronically through the Reno American Little League Website. This requires you to log into your child’s account and click on the “Apply to Coach/Volunteer” tab. If you don’t have a child in the league, sign up as a volunteer to create an account. Once you click on the volunteer tab and sign-up, you MUST follow the steps to check-out. The checkout process will activate the background check form. Failure to completely fill out the form (omission of your social security number or date of birth) will disqualify you from volunteering. The $15.00 payment will be collected at the end of the checkout process via credit card.
Remember, per Little League International rules, nobody is allowed to volunteer in any capacity until they have passed a background check. The safety of the children is the number one priority of Reno American Little League. It is the responsibility of the league appointed manager to make sure all the team’s volunteers have passed a background check. This rule will be strictly enforced at all practices and games.
Please check the attached link for those volunteers that are cleared to participate in RALL activities.
